Aspen Film Announces 31st Annual Aspen Filmfest

Aspen Film Announces 31st Annual Aspen Filmfest, Sept 30 - Oct 4, 2009

September in Aspen brings two highly anticipated events: The aspen trees turn luminously gold, and Aspen Filmfest lights up the silver screen with a five-day film festival of must-see movies and events.

We simply open the door so they can step into the magic of cinema." noted Aspen Film's Executive Director, Laura Thielen.
